From 3am to 8pm on Saturday, a band of heavy snow may bring disruption as it moves eastwards, according to the Met Office.

An area of rain moving eastwards is likely to turn to snow as it runs into cold air over East and South-East England.

East Anglia and parts of Kent and Sussex are most at risk of seeing snow for the longest period - one to three centimetres of snow may fall fairly widely over these areas with five to 10 centimetres possible in places, mostly over parts of East Anglia and any higher ground.

There may be possible delays or cancellations to rail and air travel, as well as possible travel delays on roads, leaving some motorists stranded.

Some rural communities could become cut off and power cuts may occur. Other services, such as mobile phone coverage, may also be affected, the Met Office warns.
